Still Christmas in July


I think every farbic company and on-line shop is hosting a Christmas in July right now as well as special sales on those holiday fabrics.  I have been enjoying using an old bundle from Connecting Threads - think it was called a Blue Christmas or something along that line - perfect for Cindy's BOM 2014 which is this great Christmas row quilt.

  
This month's row was steaming cocoa cups - I had to pull that Holiday Fabric Tote out for some different red prints for my cups.


This is Cindy' mock up of how our finished rows are looking so far - so cute.  You can still join in and get the patterns thru her Crafty store site.  And you can see everyone's progress in the Flickr Group.

Another project dear to me for the season is Debbie's Get Your Mrs Claus On - making doll quilts for cradles and beds crafted by volunteers that are gifted on to children in hospitals during the Holiday.  Yes, they make many more toys for both girls and boys - you have to visit to see.


 

OK, blogger is giving me grief in placing these (and why is one so blurry?) - BUT, these four little quilts will be heading out tomorrow.  They are quick, easy, fun and very fullfilling.  Great way to use up some of those scraps or orphan blocks or those panels you cut apart.  And those odd scraps of batt as well.


Even the backs - from that scrap basket and three of those - binding from my scrap binding drawer.

Are you feeling the HoHoHo yet?

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  14. I'm trying hard to resist the sales. I certainly don't need to add to my stash right now. And I honestly don't want to even think about the Ho Ho Ho yet. That is just an insane time of year for me with the kids birthdays thrown in at the same time.
